Easter Eats

First…let’s start with this gorgeous ham.

My uncle used to make one of the best hams ever and I liked it but overall I’m really not a big fan of smoked ham.  I like plain ‘ol baked / thin sliced Danish ham from the deli.  But every now and then I’ll eat smoked.

This is actually the first ham I’ve ever baked.  I used this recipe from my fav…Cristina…and of course used gluten – free bread crumbs.  Thank you, Cristina.  Years ago you taught me how to make a turkey and now a ham. 🙂

Papa L is our ham aficionado and he proclaimed this some of the best ham he’s ever eaten. Thank you, Papa L. 🙂 I was very happy with it too.

So simple…ham / brown sugar / dijon / bread crumbs / oil.  I didn’t make the wine sauce.  We eat our ham as sandwiches or just to snack on…not as a sit down meal.

Next up…Blueberry French Toast Sticks

I just subbed some blueberry syrup for some of the liquid in a favorite bread recipe (and left out the sugar since the syrup is plenty sweet) plus added a little cinnamon.  Baked it up the day before.  Cut off all the crust and sliced into sticks so it was ready to go the next day.

Two ingredient ‘Orange Julius’

…which if I’m totally honest…really the only reason we ever have brunch around here. 😉

Vanilla ice cream and orange juice.  Blend in the blender to your desired level of thickness.

Obviously this tastes even more authentic if you use real orange juice but I prefer the taste of Sunny – D.


Plus I went all Vegas / Cruise Ship style and made everyone a custom omelet.

I had bacon and cheese.

And for dessert…Strawberry Cake.

I’ll have the recipe for this up on Wednesday. 🙂

How was your Easter?  Lovely I hope. 🙂

    • Thanks gfandme. 🙂

      I wanted to let you know that I’m not showing up as following you anymore and I absolutely didn’t unfollow you. 🙂

      I just clicked on follow so hopefully I’ll be following again the next time I check my reader but I just wanted to let you know incase you want to be on the lookout for any issues that might cause that.

      • Thanks for the info. I will take a look but I think itmight just be a general issue. It happened to me once too with a site called glutenfreeforlunchboxes.
